- implements a component which allows the creation of SQL statements.
This service implements a user interface for creating SQL statements either through a graphical design
interface or simply to enter the SQL statement directly.
The design view of the QueryDesign is divided into two parts. The first part contains the table windows
where columns can be selected for the SQL statement. The second part contains the columns which should appear
in the selection of the SQL statement or criterias which narrow the query.
QueryDesign component has 3 operation modes, which control what kind of object is edited:
Initialization is done using the ::com::sun::star::lang::XInitialization interface,
which expects a sequence of objects being either ::com::sun::star::beans::NamedValues or
::com::sun::star::beans::PropertyValues. The following parameters are supported at
has to be an ::com::sun::star::frame::XFrame interface specifying the frame to plug the
QueryDesign component into.
This parameter is mandatory.
specifies the name of the globally registered DataSource for which a query, view, or SQL
command is to be designed.
The DataSourceName may be omitted if and only if a valid ActiveConnection
parameter is present.
ActiveConnection are present, the former
specifies the connection to work with.
May be ommitted if and only if a valid DataSourceName parameter is supplied.
specifies the name of the query or view to design, or, in case of the CommandType
being CommandType::COMMAND, the initial SQL command.
If this parameter is not present, a new query/view will be designed, respectively the initial
command will be empty.
specifies the type of object which should be designed. The following options are
If not present, this parameter defaults to CommandType::QUERY.
- CommandType::QUERY specifies the designer should operate in
query mode, that is, an existing client-side query should be
designed, or a new query should be created, depending on the presence of the
If the DataSourceName parameter is present, the query is
looked up in the specified data source. Otherwise, the designer tries to determine
the data source which the ActiveConnection belongs
to, and looks up the query there.
- CommandType::COMMAND specifies the designer should operate in
command mode, that is, a standalone SQL command
should be designed. When the user attempts to save the designed SQL statement,
the ActiveCommand and EscapeProcessing properties
of the designer are updated.
- CommandType::TABLE specifies the designer should operate in
view mode, that is, an existing or a new
server-side view should be designed, depending on the presence of the
If the DataSourceName parameter is present, the view is
looked up in a newly created connection for the specified data source. Otherwise,
it is looked up in the connection given as ActiveConnection.
Specifies whether or not escape processing should be initially enabled in the query designer. If set
to false, then the designer can operate in text view only (as opposed to the graphical view). The
GraphicalDesign parameter will be ignored then, and assumed to be false.
If not present, true is assumed for this parameter.
This value indicates whether the designer should be opened in the graphical design view
(true) or in the text view (false).
If not present, false is assumed for this parameter.
There's a number of legacy settings which are recognized for compatibility reasons, though
you're discouraged from using them:
